A Lebanon family is mourning the loss of an 8-year-old boy who died Saturday after an all-terrain vehicle rolled over on him on a family farm in Green County.

Officials said Grant Livers, 8, was riding a 250cc four-wheeler in a field at his family's property at 913 Grab Road at approximately 6:35 p.m. Saturday when a neighbor said he saw the ATV overturn, catching Livers beneath. Green County EMS, Grab and Green County firefighters and Green County Sheriff's Department personnel responded to the scene.

EMS personnel transported Livers to Jane Todd Crawford Hospital, where the Green County Coroner pronounced him dead at 7:07 p.m. from trauma to the head.

Authorities said Livers was not wearing a helmet.

Livers is survived by his father, Lt. C. (Ret.) Joseph Lambert Livers, Jr., of Lebanon and his mother, Shelli Marie Waldridge of Lawrenceburg, his grandparents Lambert and Agnes Livers, Sr., of Lebanon, two brothers, Joseph Lambert Livers III and James Daniel Livers, both of Lebanon, and a sister, Rebecca Joy Waldridge of Lawrenceburg.

His funeral service will be held at noon, July 28, at St. Augustine Catholic Church, Lebanon, with burial in the Lebanon National Cemetery.

Bosley Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
